Improving Educational Opportunities for Girls (8)

Parents can …

  • provide time for girls to do homework and study at home, and check their work when possible;
  • distribute home chores equitably between sons and daughters;
  • encourage daughters and sons to get enough sleep;
  • show daily interest in their daughter’s school work;
  • provide them with learning materials and uniforms;
  • ensure that they eat a good breakfast and lunch.

Girls can …

  • ask teachers for help when they don’t understand or don’t know an answer;
  • recognise that not all subjects are easy and that they should try as hard as boys to master them;
  • walk to school together with other pupils;
  • take their textbooks home and make time to study and do homework;
  • form study groups with others.
